three red lights flashing. What to do?


3rrod is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general
hardware failure" which could mean anything really. In truth its the lead
free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360
fails causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death).

run a search on the net or youtube for 3rrod guides, there are a few free ones available

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you,
there are guides available on the internet. I'm in the middle of
producing one right now that I will make available free of charge for all
fixya members.

it starts to flicker while you play


This sounds like the lead free solder is failing and will eventually go to 3rrod or e74

3rrod or e74 are common faults with the 360, it says that its a "general
hardware failure" which could mean anything really. In truth its the lead
free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360
